Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

Guest article by Mary Lee Plumb-Mentjes

Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

"There is a Lifeways Week held each year in midsummer at Emerson College in Forest Row, England.  I had heard that that this event really succeeds in keeping all family members engaged, and this past summer I went to see how it was staged." 

 

In America the word, “Lifeways,” is associated primarily with providing care for the child between infancy and three years of age, when it is not feasible for the very young child to be at home with a parent during the day.  In England the emphasis of Lifeways is the encouragement of individuals all ages from the young child to teenagers, from young and old single adults, to parents and  grandparents, to join together in the celebration of Life.

A letter from a former student

Trickle your support!

A letter from a former student

Dear friends of Emerson

I am writing to invite you to join me in a new venture to express our support and love for Emerson College.  A  'spiritual' community of support already exists in shape of the alumni. Most of us are people who in some part of their life visited Emerson, in most cases studied and lived there. For many it is a 'home' away from home and always there, if ever "you need a break/inspiring course/lovely community time again". We love to hear from Emerson and to know it is doing well and will be well, remaining active and alive for many future years.
